What does Pavonis mean?


You had to ask.

The origins of Brad Powe's thousand-year-old English family name can be traced back to the Latin word for peacock, pavo (then pronounced pah-woh), which is also a constellation in the night sky.

Pavonis literally means 'thing(s) belonging to Pavo': there is a Pavonis Mons (Peacock Mountain) on the planet Mars, and Pavonis Consulting here on Earth.

So we pronounce it Pah-voe-nis and offer you the elegance of the peacock with the diligence of the research it took to find this out.
